Is there an opposite and equal reaction?
Would this be passive in number resistance?
Where as mob rule is total freedom?
But i think in the example of a beast or storm of many individuals come into one said animal said huricane, but does it have will?
So it has life appart from the individual, it is a being that has no rhyme nor reaosn? But still a creature.
But does not the fact it has intent prove it has reason?
Can chaos be reason if actualised?
Is it even chaos when it is the hidden yet over riding of individuals actions?
Does it refuse the human individual and give birth to this new individual destructive force?
Is it merely weather and beast nothing that can or should be anthropomorphised/characterised, nothing that can be reasoned with, therefore has no reason?
Can this storm only ever be destructive?
Does not a flood have reason by the fact there is to much water and no where place for it to fill go, so it overflows, is not something anything reasoned by its reality? (trying to ask say something not quite sure how)

Your interpretations of mob mentality your expositions welcome.

Is it chaos or does it have mind?
Are either of these absolute opposites? Oil and water.

Also if any one has any idea about what the opposite of mob is please describe.
One that has intent therefore creating consciousness.
Therefore activation of will.
Even if a secret to its beholden.
So would this opposite be aware to us all the time?

Do you get what I am looking for?
Is the opposite of destruction, creation?
What kind of reason is it that does without question?

@sometime sun,
I think mob mentality comes about when many people feel disempowered in a common manner. Imagine if the supermarket suddenly decided to sell food only to people who dressed in trendy fashion outfits.

I'd be in that mob for sure.

@Poseidon,
And those who weren't rightly dressed starved.
